YEYU x Startup Leadership Program

You may know YEYU is a ever expanding machine but we are actually still a very young, growing company. And as all start-ups, we need any occasion to learn how to grow better, faster, stronger.


Our YEYU dynamite Giorgia attended for the past weeks the SLP (Startup Leadership Program) - an 80 hour, highly selective training program founded in 2006 in Boston.

It’s a global network for outstanding founders, leaders and innovators who want to become entrepreneurs which has been in Shanghai since 2011, with more than 150 fellows and 20 mentors.


Last Saturday March the 10th 2018 was the big day for the 6th batch of SLP: Launch and Graduation ceremony @ Soho Q3. All participants were asked to have a 7 minute pitch, explaining the core of their startup idea and their dreams for future growth.


Giorgia made us proud, delivering with energy a passionate speech on YEYU’s dream to revolutionize sports.


YEYU at the F45 & That’s Shanghai Sports Awards

It’s time to celebrate at YEYU!

On February the 8th, our President Andrea was nominated Sport Personality of 2018 at F45 & That’s Shanghai Sports Awards. It was a great honor to be officially recognized among those who leave a trace in the city's sports scene.

A first award and a great achievement for Andrea and YEYU team, this little yet important success means a lot to us and we want to thank all the people who contributed with their votes. As we are committed to build a sport community where people from different passions and backgrounds share the love for sports, each of you is an important pillar in our development.

Sport leaders carry great responsibilities as they represent the highest values of sport, such as discipline, dedication, consistency, fairness, team building, and respect. An inspiration to people, they are accountable for representing and sharing the sport ideal to everyone.

Andrea is passionate of sport since he remembers, and has always lived surrounded by sports professionals, amateurs, teams, and organizations, sharing with them the desire to communicate what sport means to everyone. Sport contributes to make us together, creating bonding experiences. Sport connects us, and through sport we build new relationships with others. This is the idea behind YEYU: a democratic platform where everyone can share their activities and events and interact with different sport communities.

Andrea was very honored to received this Prize, but he reminded to everyone that - as YEYU is created by everyone - the Prize should be shared with all the contributors who daily help and support YEYU to become better, and greater.

Last night was a special night for YEYU, and we want to thank everyone: from the F45 & That’s Shanghai Sports Awards organizers, to our partners, from the people who voted for Andrea, to the other nominees.

In the morning we could also enjoy the elegant and technical moves of the Chinese traditional martial arts, Wing Chun (you may know it from the movie IP Man), from the Wing Chun Club, which showed us their skills in close range contact.



The second slot of the day was dedicated to Shena Board, Zumba and Body Strength. 

Habi from Primal 6 showed us how to use the Shena Board, an ancient training tool used by martial artists to improve their flexibility, balance, and coordination.


Zumba class with Daria spread electrifying vibes, while in the other space people were having a blast with the full body strength workout led by the super energetic George from Feel Good Fitness.


Around lunch time people could have a rest from the workouts, enjoy a snack and attend workshops about wellbeing and healthy lifestyle with Lizzie from Zenergy and Jay from 9Fulfillers.


At this time the place was packed of enthusiastic and curious people, willing to prove themselves on new kind of trainings. It was the time for one of the most popular and though trainings in the world: INSANITY. In a full-packed gym, Richardson’s energy made everyone perform better than expected!


Yoga with Jade from Free Soul Yoga gave a completely different feeling. In a more tranquil atmosphere, everyone could enjoy relaxing vibrations and listen to their body. 


Bethany and Andrew from Paradigm Fitness gave an inspiring lesson on how to never give up and reach our goals through mental toughness and discipline. 


The early afternoon was dedicated to another boxing class with WeBox, and the first spinning class of the day with Todd from Spinback, with a fast and sweaty 45 min ride.


Next to the bikers room people could experient the elegance of Acro-yoga with Cesar.


For those who still had some energy left, the last three classes of the day included BJJ (Brazilian Jujitsu) with Yunus from SHBJJ, another successful spinning class, and an amazing Boot Camp with Alex from AFit.

YEYU explores the Ninja lifestyle /// 忍者的生活方式

In a world where fitness and physical activity is often relegated to the dark dungeon-like machine-filled gyms, it is the inner desire to break through the status quo and challenge the human body that led John to leave conventional gyms back in 2013 to focus on bodyweight training & calisthenics. The ultimate goal? Complete bodyweight domination, taking control of all human body parts to execute complex, functional and challenging movements that make full use of the human anatomy.

在生活节奏日益加快的社会,健身房训练常常被误解成充满机械的黑暗地牢,那么,如何打破现状和挑战人体的内在愿望? 在2013年,约翰离开了传统的健身房,开始专注于体能训练和健美操相结合。约翰的最终目标是完美的体重控制,充分利用人体解剖学,将人体各个组织的功能发挥到极限,完成具有挑战性的运动。

Born and raised in Italy, continued his studies in London, and now currently resides in China since 2010 - John has combined his corporate life with his passion for fitness by finding a healthy balance between the two. Business professional by day, Ninja Warrior by night. 


A passion for fitness that led him, after numerous years of training, to start teaching monthly Ninja Warrior classes in Shanghai, and to team up with YEYU to help this young start-up grow and thrive in the vibrant sports&fitness scene in Shanghai.

经过多年的训练,健身使他富有激情,约翰开始在上海开设体能训练和健美操课程,并且与YEYU一起推动这项运动的成长, 相信在不久的将来,这将成为上海的新兴运动。

Differently from many other forms of fitness, Calisthenics and Ninja Warrior are disciplines that rely almost exclusively on your body weight to help you improve core, agility, strength, functionality while at the same time acquiring new skills and exploring the limitations of the human body. Commitment, persistence and a general desire to challenge yourself on a daily basis are the driving forces behind this type of training, where there is no space for machines, burpees or 20-minute long planks.


Wherever you live, and wherever you travel, there is no place on earth where you can’t find a good spot to train or challenge yourself. 



Whether at home.


At the gym.


On Shanghai rooftops.


Wandering around your hometown (Milan),


Or exploring Jeju Island’s beautiful sceneries.


Remember, your fitness regime shouldn’t be limited to the gym. 

The World is our playground.




If you want to learn more about Calisthenics & Ninja Warrior, or simply want to challenge John at some funky and unorthodox exercise feel free to add him on the YEYU app or on WeChat (JD4000).

If you haven’t heard of Insanity yet, let’s just say it’s not for the faint-hearted. Insanity has been and still is one of the most challenging fitness programs on the market. As a total body workout that requires no gym or equipment, the program is based on a fitness method called "max interval training”. Max interval training consists of 3-minute work intervals, with 30-second periods of rest in between. In some people, exercising at this extreme intensity level will burn up to 1,000 calories an hour. It had to take someone very special (or insane) to introduce Insanity to the Shanghai fitness community.
